2022 may seem a ways off, but now’s the time to buy speculation books related to Secret Invasion. You might argue that it’s actually too late considering that Marvel has already announced the show. However, judging from sales information on GoCollect, speculators haven’t yet turned their attention to Secret Invasion key issues. We’ll discuss two highly affordable key issues related to Secret Invasion below.
We all know Secret Invasion is coming to Disney+ at some point in 2022. Considering how much Kevin Feige likes to adapt existing TV and movie genres for use in the MCU (e.g., TV sitcoms, Hong Kong kung fu films, spy thrillers), my guess is that Secret Invasion will look and feel like a sci-fi horror film similar to Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Incredible Hulk #418: First Appearance of Talos
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how keys related to Carol Danvers were dropping in value in recent years. It appears that lack of market interest in Carol also extends to other characters associated with her, including Talos.
Talos first appears in Incredible Hulk #418. Even though Talos has already appeared twice in the MCU and we know he will play a major role in Secret Invasion, his first appearance has never captured the attention of collectors. Because very few collectors have submitted this book to CGC (according to the Census, CGC has only graded 69 copies of this issue), there’s little sales data available. Raw copies of this book remain highly affordable on eBay. You can purchase raw, high-grade copies of this book for only $10 to $15 on eBay.
Mighty Avengers #13: First Appearances of Stonewall, Druid, Hellfire & Slingshot
Mighty Avengers #13 is a part of the Secret Invasion storyline. Once Nick Fury learns that the Skrulls have secretly invaded Earth by impersonating various superheroes, Fury assembles a new team, the Secret Warriors, to defend against the Skrull invasion.
Not only does Mighty Avengers #13 contain the first appearance of the Secret Warriors team, but it also includes the first appearance of several team members including (1) Stonewall; (2) Druid; (3) Hellfire; and (4) Slingshot. It’s rare to find a book with so many first appearances. While none of these characters are household names yet, if one of them becomes a breakout star, this book could explode in value. As we know from WandaVision and The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, even if Disney teases the appearance of one of these characters, this book could jump in value.
Like Incredible Hulk #418, few collectors have paid any attention to this comic. Because very few collectors have submitted this book to CGC (according to the Census, CGC has only graded 59 copies of this issue), there’s little available sales data. Raw copies of this book, however, are highly affordable on eBay. You can purchase raw, high-grade copies of this book for just $10 on eBay. While it’s not a sure thing that the Secret Warriors will appear in Secret Invasion, at $10 an issue, this is a low-risk investment.
